Chrissy Teigen Says She’s 100 Days Sober During First TV Interview Since Bullying Drama
Remember Chrissy Teigen? The former model who married John Legend and somehow became a huge influencer on Twitter/Instagram? Oh, and remember her weirdly dancing in the corner of that Lip Sync Battle show? She’d always just be popping up randomly like some bad acne.
Well, her internet fame took a hit earlier this year when she was accused of being a huge cyberbully years ago. You’ll remember she told Courtney Stodden to kill herself on multiple occasions.
She finally had to pay for her disgusting comments and was largely muted on Twitter, which must have been difficult for her because she was once named the Queen of the platform.
Following the drama, she revealed she had been drinking too much and decided to get sober, and now during her first TV interview since the mini-cancellation, Teigen has revealed she’s currently 100 days sober.
“I’m so excited. I feel so good, I feel very clear-headed,” she told Today host Hoda Kotb on October 26, 2021.
I think you learn so much in the moments where you do lose so much, you lose it all, your world is kind of turned upside down. For me it was a big moment of, ‘Wow, I need to find out how I can be better, how I can grow from this, learn from this.’ There’s that old cliché like I’m glad it happened, but truly it made me a stronger person, a better person.
She’s now focused on being a role model for her two children with John Legend.
I look at my kids and I look at what I want their values to be and how I want them to treat people, and to see that in myself that I wasn’t doing that. The hardest part for me was realizing, my goodness, this really had an effect on people…You don’t really think about the impact and the person on the other side.
Hey, that’s great. We’re not gonna hate. If she truly did learn something from this whole thing, and if it helps her raise empathetic young adults, then we applaud her for it.
But if she’s saying all this for the camera? Shame, Chrissy. Shame.
